Wilson again. Canon press, busy promoting Stephen Wolfe’s book, “The Case for Christian Nationalism.” Wilson is lamenting what he describes as unjust criticism and persecution aka, “a sort of proxy war and daisy chain extortion.”

Here’s the deal without all the fancy frosting and oddly placed daisy chains. Wolfe seems to imply that black folks are somehow less intelligent, interracial marriage messes with ethno-harmony, and women shouldn’t vote.

Of course that’s not really what he means, we wish to smooth over those concepts, make them all pretty, and present the exact same pile of poo, just now with sprinkles and frosting on it so it all tastes better.

That’s all a big “nope” from me. If I were to draw a caricature of what a, “scary Christian nationalist” might look like, there it is. Nope, not happening. I do not approve. I do not consent to this “weirdness.”

Wilson is quite charitable and gracious to compare his support of this book to his support of, “Augustine, despite his weirdness about women.”

So just more “weirdness?” That is called denial, dismissing, dehumanizing, and gas lighting. Like a thousand angry voices try to point out something that is serious, hurtful, and wrong and Wilson attempts to just reduce and dismiss it all as a bit of lovable weirdness? No, “weirdness” is when you put ketchup on your eggs, not when you run around carrying on about the horrors of interracial marriage and the alleged “gynocratic Global American Empire.”

Wilson says, “The Case for Christian Nationalism is generating this kind of resistance because it was timely, and it touches raw nerves.” Actually, no. It is generating resistance because it is reminding us all why theocracy is a really bad idea and why our founders worked so hard on separation of church and state. It is also making some people simply leap across the political divide, switch parties, and sometimes to just flee the entire church in horror.

This is not “weird,” this is vile.
